Mississippi State Bulldogs vs South Carolina Gamecocks 2/23/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Mississippi State Bulldogs will meet with the South Carolina Gamecocks in a Southeastern Conference clash in Colonial Life Arena, Columbia, SC, on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, at 6:30 PM (EST). Mississippi State had a 12-4 start this year, with wins over Arkansas and Alabama, and appeared like an NCAA Tournament team.

 

The Bulldogs went on to lose seven of their next nine matches, with the two victories coming at home against Ole Miss and South Carolina. This weekend, they were able to recover, sweeping Missouri in a two-game series. Due to a COVID-19 setback in early January, the teams were obliged to play twice in three days.

They are rated No. 32 in KenPom’s adjusted offensive efficiency ratings heading into this matchup. They are strong on the offensive boards, ranking 30th in offensive rebounding %. They are shooting poorly from beyond the arc, making only 31.3 percent of their 3-point attempts. Mississippi State will take on a South Carolina defense ranked 37th in adjusted efficiency.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Mississippi State’s previous 6 matches.
  • The Mississippi State Bulldogs are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 matches against South Carolina.
  • Mississippi State is 6-3 ATS in their last 9 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

Mississippi State Bulldogs vs South Carolina Gamecocks Predictions 2/23/2022

 

Despite having nearly the same record as Mississippi State, South Carolina is not in contention for the NCAA Tournament owing to poor strength of schedule and a lack of victories against strong opponents.

 

The Gamecocks, on the other hand, won three straight games after dropping three in a row to Mississippi State, Tennessee, and Kentucky. They won 77-75 against LSU on Saturday, following away victories over Georgia and Ole Miss.

 

The Gamecocks will finish the regular season with games against No. 24 Alabama, No. 3 Auburn, and No. 24 Alabama, giving them two opportunities to make the playoffs.

 

This season, they are a good defensive club, but their offense suffered. South Carolina is rated 177th in adjusted offensive efficiency heading into this matchup.

 

The Gamecocks struggled to make shots from anywhere on the field, ranking outside the top 240 in 2-point, 3-point, and free throw percentages. They’re also dealing with a lot of turnovers since they’re rated 325th in the country in terms of turnover rate. Mississippi State’s defense is ranked No. 62 in adjusted efficiency; South Carolina will take them out.

 

  • The total went OVER in 7 of South Carolina’s last 7 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of South Carolina’s last 9 matches against Mississippi State.
  • South Carolina is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

Mississippi State Bulldogs vs South Carolina Gamecocks. The NCAAB pick for this game is the South Carolina Gamecocks. Mississippi State’s home-road splits are among the most extreme in NCAA basketball this season.

 

The Bulldogs are 13-2 at home, but 1-7 on the road in their last eight games. They’re now on their way to one of the country’s most underappreciated environments. South Carolina won 10 games in a row at Colonial Life Arena in front of its home fans.

 

The Gamecocks struggle offensively, which makes playing in a familiar setting even more vital. Mississippi State’s troubles with turnovers and 3-point shooting do not bode well for the team on the road. In four of its previous five matches, South Carolina covered the spread. The South Carolina Gamecocks will win to a predicted score of 71-68.
